Youth for Youth Benefit 
DCS is giving the gift of Christian summer camp to kids in Africa. There are three ways you can support!



Freedom Church Benefit Concert  

474 Hiram Sudie Rd. Dallas

November 8th at 7pm

Mrs. Sethna is hosting the event and

Harrison Huff will be one of the performers so come out and support Dominion's own. 



  If you are unable to attend, you can place your donation in your class gift box,

located in the lobby near Dr. Whittaker's room. There you can see photos and read testimonials from past campers and directors.


  We have 10 days to each give $10 - October 29 - November 7. 


 Mrs. Sethna volunteers with JWF, which is an organization made up entirely of volunteers passionate about camp ministry. It is a 501c3 non-profit charity and all donors can receive a tax-deduction receipt. (If you want a receipt for a cash donation, put the money in an envelope and include your name and email address).

Athletes of the Week   10/27-10/31
JV Volleyball

Sarah Prater.  Sarah had a great season for the JV volleyball team.  She was consistent, hardworking, and positive.  She played multiple positions on the court and always supported her team. 
Varsity Volleyball   
The entire team is receiving the athlete of the week due to their performance against Loganville at the state tournament.   The team as a whole peaked on that day.   They performed beautifully executing the new defense, team play and demonstrating a desire to win on the Court.   The team played with heart and as a result the varsity team defeated Loganville in the 1st round of state.  Every player did their part and did it well.

Varsity Cross Country 
Reese Baumgartner.  Reese is a leader both on and off the trail. She works hard and always strives to improve. Throughout the season, one of Reese's greatest strengths is encouragement. Always putting others first, Reese consistently leads by example.



Varsity Football

Levi Lewallen, Dave Carr, and Dorien Jenkins.  The "Three Amigos!"  Levi, Dave, and Dorien left it out on the field in a devastating region lost.  Levi had 14 tackles and one QB SAC.  Dave Carr had 8 Tackles and 1 TD.  Dorien Jenkins had 228 All-purpose yards, 1 TD, and 9 tackles.
